After revealing the car last month, Jaguar has officially introduced the XFR-S Sportbrake at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show 2014.
Designed to battle the Mercedes E63 AMG, the XFR-S Sportbrake is the estate version of the XFR-S saloon. Powering the Sportbrake will be the same 5.0 liter supercharged V8, which also powers the XFR-S saloon. This supercharged motor develops 550 PS of max power and 680 Nm of peak torque. The engine is mated to an eight speed automatic transmission with ‘Quickshift’ functionality, which allows the car to hit the ton in 4.8 seconds. The top whack of the car has been electronically capped at 300 kmph. Jaguar says that the fuel efficiency for this car has also been optimized with spray-guided direct injection and dual independent variable cam timing.
The frontal section of the car gets larger and lower sitting central and side air intakes than the saloon version. The sides of the car feature an extended side sill and aeroblade moulding behind the front wheels for enhanced aerodynamics.
At the rear, a carbon fibre diffuser with three lines sits at the center to further reduce lift. The sportiness of the car is further enhanced by the dual chrome exhausts. The car will be available in five exterior paint options- Ultra blue, Ultimate black, Stratus grey, Polaris white and Italian racing red.
The cabin comes nicely equipped with Warm Charcoal leather seats, embossed headrests and dark aluminum trim. Despite the emphasis on performance, the model has an impressive cargo capacity of up to 1675 liters (59 cubic feet) with the rear seats folded.
The new Jaguar XFR-S Sportbrake will be available in the UK from April 1, this year, and will have a sticker price tag of 82,000 pounds.
